About Nextdoor

Nextdoor is the private social network for you, your neighbors and your community. It's the easiest way for you and your neighbors to talk online and make all of your lives better in the real world. And it's free.

Thousands of neighborhoods are already using Nextdoor to build happier, safer places to call home.

People are using Nextdoor to:

  • Quickly get the word out about a break-in
  • Organize a Neighborhood Watch Group
  • Track down a trustworthy babysitter
  • Find out who does the best paint job in town
  • Ask for help keeping an eye out for a lost dog
  • Find a new home for an outgrown bike
  • Finally call that nice man down the street by his first name

Nextdoor’s mission is to provide a trusted platform where neighbors work together to build stronger, safer, happier communities, all over the world.

Position

We are looking for an experienced Software Engineer to join our Developer Tools team and ensure that our developers have the best-in-class infrastructure and tooling needed for us to maximize our productivity! This is a unique opportunity to join a small, experienced team and take on a significant role in Nextdoor’s development.

Our team works in a continuous deployment environment which relies heavily on carefully orchestrated build, test, and deployment systems - this allows our developers to push code dozens of times a day to our production systems with confidence. Working between desktop and cloud development, you will make extensive use of Docker to ensure that our development, testing, and production environments are as similar as possible in configuration and code.

If you have a passion for collaborating with developers to help make their jobs easier and save them time, we’d love to hear from you!

Your qualification
  • BA/BS degree in Computer Science or equivalent work experience required
  • Proficient in one or more dynamic scripting languages (Python preferred, Ruby, Perl, Bash)
  • Experience working with Go or Java strongly preferred
  • Cloud computing experience in AWS strongly preferred
  • Deep understanding of software configuration management process from development to testing to deployment
  • Very strong attention to detail
  • Experience troubleshooting distributed architecture
  • Strong collaboration and communication skills, both verbal and written
  • Ability to be flexible and adaptable in a fast-paced startup environment
  • Strong desire to learn about new technologies and systems
  • Want to work in San Francisco - we can help you relocate if necessary
What we offer
  • The opportunity to work with a collaborative and entrepreneurial team on a powerful mission to change the world, one neighborhood at a time
  • 100% company-paid health insurance premiums (medical, dental and vision) for you and your family
  • Paid vacation and company holidays
  • 401K plan
  • Meaningful equity for all employees
  • Commuter benefits through Clipper card
  • Free catered dinners during the week, Monday through Thursday
  • Fully stocked kitchens with drinks, snacks, and candy
  • La Marzocco espresso machine with Blue Bottle coffee
  • Shiny Apple products on you first day
